Summary Death and Digital Media provides a critical overview of how people mourn, commemorate, and interact with the dead through digital media. It maps the historical and shifting landscape of digital death, considering a wide range of social, commercial, and institutional responses to technological innovations. The authors examine multiple digital platforms and offer a series of case studies from North America, Europe, and Australia. The book delivers fresh insight and analysis from an interdisciplinary perspective, drawing on anthropology, sociology, science and technology studies, human-computer interaction, and media studies. It is key reading for students and scholars in these disciplines, as well as for professionals working in bereavement support capacities.
